## Analysis and Behavior of StructuresOffering students a presentation of classical structural analysis, this text emphasizes the limitations required in creating mathematical models for analysis, including these used in computer programs. Students are encouraged to use hand methods of analysis to develop a feel for the behaviour of structures. |
